I Have a 1990 Subaru Lecacy LS with AWD, that is haveing an auto transmission problem. The transmisson works in D1, D2 and Reverse with no problems. The transmission will not do anything in D3 or D(Drive). My question is has any had this problem and is fixable? or should i just get a new Transmission? I pulled down the Trans. cover and the fluid was dark with metal flacks...

how big were the metal flakes? Most likely the trans is toast. You'll either need to have it rebuilt or get a new one.

Was the remote transmission filter ever installed? If not you've probability chewed up the planetary set.

The metal flakes were mainly small.

Yes, the remote transmission filter was installed. When I do not know. The car has 131,000 miles on it now.

If the tranny fluid isn't a nice red color, then it's burned, probably along with the clutch packs.
